Belford Gulch

Is there more than one group who have descended this properly, or is it a death trap like I experienced in December 2019? Blind side of pecks peak, multiple ice falls but supposedly doable on the WNW side of gulch crest.

I would guess that others have done it, but the lower part doesn't look good on the map. It looks very steep, has several waterfalls and is likely plagued with fallen timber.
I'm slow and fat. Unfortunately, those are my good qualities.
